Yesterday I had a very palpitationful day at Malvern Festival Of Quilts. The work on display was wonderful but the cause of the heart pounding is always the fabric stalls.
I bought some lovely silk theme packs from The Silk Route (top left) and some Japanese taupes (top right).
Below you can see two lovely Japanese linen fabrics. With one of these I intend to make my daughter (who doesn't like pink much) a dance bag for her tap shoes etc. I might make myself a little something with the other as I'm not very grown up.
I needed beta blockers at the bookstalls and eventually plumped for one in French. Well there was another version in Japanese but that really doesn't give me any hope for following the instructions. In fact plain English instructions always give me gip. It's a book of applique motifs by Yoko Saito and is almost too nice to open. I couldn't take it to bed last night because I would have been awake all night!
